As mentioned above, they average 100k to 150k per album released which is decent but their numbers should be a lot better considering they are from JYP meaning there's budget for marketing and promotions.

So I compared numbers with NCT and found that the numbers were similar (talking about first two years album sales since they did not debut on the same year). NCT's album sales picked up last year so maybe after a few more months or early next year Stray Kids albums sales would be better.

For other boy groups (less than 3 years) like Astro, SF9, Pentagon...its around 20k to 60k per album.

I honestly see their career trajectory being quite similar to NCT’s tbh. As in: very experimental and often polarising music that doesn’t connect easily to anyone who isn’t a fan, more effort to appeal to international (particularly western) audiences due to lukewarm reception in SK, etc etc. but yeah, I hope their album sales improve over time as well.

That's a very good observation about their music. I'm one of those who can't get into Stray Kids music and since I don't usually follow JYP artists in varieties or their YT, I don't know their personalities as well so I don't have anything to hook me into the group. I watch their MVs and music show performances but I haven't found that song that I like from them.

NCT is a different story. They used to confuse me so much I gave up LMAO I still adore Ten, Johnny, Lucas and Doyoung. They are my favorite people in NCT.

Yeah, I briefly tried to get into NCT but to no avail. It’s just too confusing trying to keep up with all the members and ever-changing subunits. That being said, I really like Wayv! I’m so happy Ten has finally found a permanent group <3
